All the Marijuana-Legal Countries

The decriminalization of marijuana is controversial topic, in most places marijuana as viewed as “bad” in which most places followed the example set by the US some time ago to criminalize it. Though in most places its illegal there are still places that have pushed its legality even just medical marijuana with heavy restrictions, apart from some States in the US, there are some marijuana-legal countries.

Maybe you believe in medical marijuana and looking for a safe place to medicate whatever health difficulties you are experiencing or maybe you are just looking for a place to smoke a joint without alarming the authorities. Then this is the list for you.

United States







Ah the land of freedom, also cannabis. As we know there are States that legalized the consumption of marijuana, mostly for medical purposes, but good news is that for those who enthusiastic about smoking or vaping, there are 4 states in the US that allow recreational marijuana use given that you are in the right age of course. There is also a whopping 25 states that allow the practice of medical marijuana which is good for those who believe in the power of medical cannabis.

It’s not just about legality that makes United States a solid choice for cannabis enthusiast, but there are also existing marijuana tourism particularly in Colorado which makes it easier for those who are passionate about it.



In year 2009, the Supreme Court has ruled that the personal use of marijuana in very own private places are allowed, as long as it small amounts.

Maybe you have a friend that lives there or a property there and you could possibly have a happy time on your own there. Just be careful though selling, transportation and cultivation isn’t allowed so you may want to learn how to get some joint to smoke on your own.



The states of Australian Capital Territory, South Australia and the Northern Territory from Australia allow growing up to two plants in your own private home. Apart from those states the use of marijuana is mostly illegal just like in most marijuana-legal countries.



Just this January 16 the possession of up to 5 grams of marijuana is allowed. And of course personal use of it is allowed.



One of the more cannabis accepting marijuana-legal countries since they actually have decriminalized the possession of marijuana up to 3 grams ever since 2003 granted that you are also 18 years old or older.



Though has still not been completely decriminalized they allow personal use of marijuana. With their own healthy set of restrictions of course.



Now this country is one of them. Marijuana has mostly been decriminalized and it’s widespread use is known even among foreigners, there are even “Happy” restaurant where they serve cannabis infused food, which is quite popular.
